Morning on the Quay

On one of the (few) bright sunny mornings recently we went down , early to Hamble Quay for breakfast. From the vantage point on the upper deck there were great views of the river.

It was a slow day, very peaceful, not even the usual fleet of racers making their way downriver and out to the start in Southampton water.

The only activity in the dinghy park was the lifeboat crew opening up the station. Hamble is fortunate in having it's own independent lifeboat service set up over 40 years ago.

Below the lifeboat crew sculls out to one of two ribs the voluntary service operates.
